    The rockery area of Sharon's garden has become overrun by these things, they are 6 to 8 inches high, they just come straight out the ground individually, they do not seem to be attached to the green leafy things around them, if you bump them a mist of dusty material falls from the head,,, anybody got a clue what they are and should we get rid somehow...

    It seems like when you say you bump them they are releasing spores which makes me think it's some sort of fungi.

    Looks like it. I must say it was always the green parts I used to see as well. One for the horticulturalist... 294053457 I think we called it "Mare's Tail". It's terrible stuff, if you try to pull it out it just snaps at ground level leaving the root in the ground.
